Our little kitchen helpers back during our first virtual Thanksgiving
The Virtual Thanksgiving is nothing new. We have been doing it for years. What makes it different now is that many, many people will have to do it due to restrictions on family gatherings.
Without getting into the politics the fact that Thanksgiving has to go virtual is not the end of the world. In fact, it can be a fun event that kicks off a whole new level of celebrating a very old tradition.
Some complain that because Thanksgiving features food so prominently it just cannot be done virtually. Actually, the exact opposite is true. That Thanksgiving can be held virtually really speaks to how social a gathering Thanksgiving really is – quite unique among holidays.
Our family celebrated our first virtual Thanksgiving way back in 1998. It happened spontaneously. It happened because it had to happen.
Today we have much better...
